To see the way the tri recs ruler is used to make the four 3.5” squares out of three triangles that you need for this sashing see the Diamonds in the Rough Sashing tutorial or just follow along with your rulers’ directions.
Cutting Instructions for Wild Trees (16.)
1 strip 3.5” x at least 14” – longer if you want to do some fussy cutting as I did.
4 rectangles – 3.5” x 5” of background fabrics - (same or all different)
I fussy cut out three main triangles so that woodland creatures would peak out of the trees. Using fun grey ‘house’ prints creates a great color combination with the pinks, grays and reds. Before this Home Sweet Home Quilt Along I rarely fussy cut everything! For this quilt I purposely did quite a bit of fussy cutting. I love that those little details make people excited when looking at the quilt. Every time I look at the quilt, I see something new – a detail I forgot about or missed previously. It makes me happy.
